Without a Nickel: The Challenge of Internationalizing the Curriculum and the Campus. AASCU Studies 1983/2.
Issues pertaining to internationalizing the undergraduate and professional school curriculum and campus are summarized by the president emeritus of Western Oregon State College, based on a 1983 national workshop attended by college administrators and staff of international programs. Efforts by professional schools to provide international studies and campus activities were addressed, as were the roles of student and faculty exchanges. Attention was also focused on the following concerns: the ways that undergraduate and professional schools can better serve international students, approaches to effectively develop international faculty exchanges, and fund- raising. Challenges that this mission poses for schools that are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities are addressed, including the development of policies for international education and internationalizing the academic program. Appendices include a workshop schedule and a list of the names and addresses of contact persons (panelists, moderators, federal resource persons) for each of the following sessions: internationalizing the undergraduate curriculum, internationalizing the professional school, integrating educational exchange with the institutional mission, and mobilizing the needed resources.
